(Onalaska, WI) October 1, 2023 - Ironcore, Inc. today announced its commitment to cybersecurity education by participating in the 20th Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Founded in 2004, Cybersecurity Awareness Month, held each October, is the world’s foremost initiative aimed at promoting cybersecurity awareness and best practices. Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a collaborative effort among businesses, government agencies, colleges and universities, associations, nonprofit organizations, tribal communities, and individuals committed to educating others on online safety.

Starting this year, the new theme of Cybersecurity Awareness Month is Secure Our World. From mobile to connected home devices, technology is deeply intertwined with our lives. And while the evolution of technology accelerates, cybercriminals are working just as hard to find ways to compromise technology and disrupt personal and business life. For 20 Octobers and counting, Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to highlight some of the emerging challenges that exist in the world of cybersecurity today and provide straightforward actionable guidance that anyone can follow to create a safe and secure digital world for themselves and their loved ones.

All month long, Ironcore will be promoting these key behaviors to encourage every employee to take control of their online lives. There are all kinds of ways to stay safe and secure online but even just practicing these cybersecurity basics can make a huge difference:

  1. Use Strong Passwords and a Password Manager
  2. Turn on Multifactor Authentication
  3. Recognize and Report Phishing
  4. Update Your Software

Each week Ironcore will be addressing one of these best practices.
Additionally, we encourage you and your collogues to join us Tuesday, October 31st at 11 am CST for our webinar How to Stay Safe Online. Visit ironcore-inc.com/webinar to register today!

Cybersecurity Awareness Month continues to build momentum and impact with the goal of providing everyone with the information they need to stay safer and more secure online. Ironcore is proud to support this far-reaching online safety awareness and education initiative which is co-managed by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency and the National Cybersecurity Alliance.
